Q. I was injured on July 19th 2019 at Prairie Ridge Senior Apts. Can someone advice me what to do? Please?
A: Certainly. It is in your best interest to first and foremost seek all of the medical attention necessary to address your injuries and concerns. Next, you should organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, including the video you describe, and consult with an attorney individually to discuss your options moving forward. It is well advised to refrain from speaking with the ownership and management until you are represented by counsel. Many of us offer free consultation, and will represent you in regards to your bodily injuries on a contingent basis if your claims have merit, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the representation and guidance of an experienced professional. Also, I recommend acting quickly because the sooner you can get an attorney representing your interests, the better.
Q. Receiving another offer after accepting a contingent offer?
A: It depends on the specific language of the contract, and the duration of the contingency periods you describe. That being the case, I recommend you ask the attorney that is representing you in this matter, as he or she is most familiar with the transaction and is in the best position to provide you with a comprehensive answer. If you are not yet represented by an attorney, I highly suggest you hire one immediately. Many of us represent buyers and sellers in real estate transactions for an incredibly small fee considering the value we can add to such a transaction when serving as a resource to protect your interest and ensure your transaction is closed smoothly.
Q. Do I have any legal options or am I saddled with the burden of trying to get this repaired?
A: You may have a couple of options based on the facts provided. Your best option would likely be if the previous owners of the home had knowledge of the material defects you describe. If so, they may have violated various Illinois statutes if they did not disclose the defects to you when you purchased the work. That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, and consult with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the opinion of an experienced professional who can advise as to your options moving forward.
Q. I own an epoxy company and we had an issue on a job with the top coat failing and I offered to redo and customer denied
A: There are a few issues based on the facts presented. That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, including the governing contract, and consult with an attorney individually to explore your options.
Q. if a self-employed person is killed at work is his boss liable
A: It is certainly possible, but an attorney will need to review additional facts in order to provide you with a more definitive answer, such as the circumstances surrounding the cause of death. That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, including reports and records, and consult with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the opinion or an experienced professional that would be happy to assist with providing some insight on your options moving forward.
Q. If my toddler was injured in a hotel by a table that fell on him could I have a case?
A: It is certainly possible that you have a case based on the facts provided. However, an attorney will need additional facts in order to provide you with a comprehensive evaluation of the viability of recovering on such an action, such as the reason the table fell etc... That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession related to this matter, including any pictures and evidence you have, and consult with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, and will represent you and your son on a contingent basis if the case has merit, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the opinion and guidance of an experienced professional.
Q. Hi there, if I wanted to sue an auto repair shop for fraud, what type of lawyer would i need to hire?
A: If you are seeking a lawyer to sue an auto repair shop for fraud, I recommend hiring an attorney with experience in civil litigation, specifically with experience with the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. That said, I recommend you organize everything in your possession that is relevant to this matter, and consult with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to obtain the opinion of an experienced professional. Also, I recommend acting quickly, because if your allegations for fraud are grounded in the purchase of a used car, you may be entitled to additional remedies if you act within 15 days of the purchase of the vehicle pursuant to statutory authority.
Q. Good morning im being sued and I don't know what to do next
A: You should stop everything you are doing and consult with an attorney immediately. Do not contact the relevant parties or make any statements about the matter until you are represented. Also, I recommend acting quickly, as you have a limited amount of time to respond to a summons. Many of us offer free consultations, so it will not cost you anything out of pocket to organize the complaint and other relevant documentation, and consult with an experienced attorney. After a review of the details, we can advise as to the best course of action moving forward.
Q. I had a verbal breach of contract when I signed an offer letter as an independent contractor, can I sue for this matter?
A: You may be entitled to a remedy based on the facts provided, but the viability of recovering on such an action is dependent on specific facts that are not provided here, such as the details around the statements made, as well as the terms of the offer letter you reference. That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession related to this matter, including the offer letter, and consult with an attorney individually. Many of us offer free consultations, and will gladly review the information, and advise as to your options moving forward.
